Love this piece on marriage. I have been married since August 3, 2012 and I didnt think that I ever wanted to be married. When I met my husband in 2009 I never thought we would ever get married. My dad never married and he was a happy dude. Also my mother was a raging alcoholic so I dont blame him for not marrying her. My husband and I had talked about marriage and I very resistant to it because I never wanted to get married. But over the months, and long discussions I decided why not? What was I so resistant against… And now we have been married a little over a year and I couldnt be happier. People ask how it feels to be married and I tell them it feels like he is still my boyfriend. Marriage, girlfriend, boyfriend all the same to me. Just because there is a title and my last name is different I dont view it any different. Call me crazy, but I am not old fashion. Many will tell me I am wrong and that is fine we all have different beliefs. Marriage may not be for all but many will say that you are heading in the right direction.
Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.
Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.
I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.
Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?
Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.
